PW SPCA offers $45 spay-neuter-adoption of cats thru June 30 to ease shelter overcrowding

Prince William County Animal Shelter announced that it has reached the maximum capacity for cats and has implemented its managed intake policy.  The shelter has stopped intake until cat numbers decrease.  The good news is that the shelter does not euthanize when space is tight.  The bad news is that more than 80 cats are in need of homes before new cats can be accepted. 

In an effort to increase adoptions, the Prince William SPCA reports it is sponsoring a “Spay it Forward” program that funds the cost of the spay/neuter surgeries for all cats, one year an older, through the end of June. 

All intact cats require the $90-$145 spay/neuter surgery on top of the $45 adoption fee.  Kittens are in high demand but once the cats reach a year or so, they often get overlooked, especially if they are not spayed or neutered.  The surgery fee can be a deterrent to families who may look elsewhere when seeking to adopt a cat.  By covering the surgery fees, the Prince William SPCA says it is “giving these cats a much greater chance of finding familes who can give them forever homes.”         

Through June 30th, the fee to adopt any cat is $45 and includes a rabies vaccine, microchip, distemper combo vaccine and spay/neuter surgery (cats 1+ year).  Cats are available at the Prince William County Animal Shelter (14807 Bristow Road, Manassas, VA 20112) during normal hours of operation and on the Prince William SPCA’s P.A.W. Express mobile adoption van on Saturday, June 23 (Taste of Woodbridge).  For times and details, visit the Prince William SPCA’s website at

If adopting a cat is not an option or you want ease into the idea, consider fostering.  Proving a foster home to a shelter cat is temporary and literally saves by freeing up space at the shelter and allowing the cats to wait in a home environment.  It also gives families an opportunity “test the waters” to see if a cat is right for them.  If you are interested in fostering, please contact the Prince William County Animal Shelter at 703-792-6465.

The “Spay it Forward” program is one of many ways the Prince William SPCA has supported the Prince William County Animal Shelter over the last 13 years.  The organization sponsors a microchip for every animal adopted or redeemed from the shelter and was instrumental in the advocacy for a new shelter expected to be built in 2020. 

The P.A.W. Express mobile adoption van is a partnership between the shelter and the Prince William SPCA.  For the last seven years, the van has exclusively showcased animals from the Prince William County Animal Shelter at community events throughout the year.

The Prince William SPCA is an all-volunteer nonprofit organization established to benefit the animals of the greater Prince William County, Virginia, area.  Donations are tax-deductible and may be mailed to: PWSPCA, PO Box 6631, Woodbridge, VA 22195. Go to for more information.
